7. Christy O’Connor Jnr – 2-iron at 18th, 1989 Ryder Cup

A fairytale moment for the Irishman who had cruelly been dismissed as Europe’s weak link in the press that very morning. There was nothing weak about the 2-iron he flushed to four feet on The Belfry’s notorious 18th. So flustered was Freddie Couples that despite being 80 yards past O’Connor off the tee, he flailed his 9-iron wildly right almost into the crowd. The Brabazon’s 18th hole was made for moments like this.

GM Rating 97.8/100
